‘Alien: Covenant’ Clip: The Spineburster Is Your New Worst Nightmare
Alien: Covenant is arriving soon, whether we’re ready for it or not, and a short new clip assures us that this movie is definitely more horror than sci-fi. Even these thirty seconds are enough to make one feel antsy, and the final sound effect is enough to send a million chills down the spine. The Xenomorphs are back, baby!
The above clip shows Amy Seimetz’ character running through a hallway to a door with a tiny porthole window in it. On the other side of the window is Carmen Ejogo, who doesn‘t seem to be having much fun on the wrong side of a locked door. While we’ve seen bits of this play out in the trailers, it’s pretty chilling to see all of it happening in sequence. Ejogo begs to be let out, but Siemetz, probably hoping to contain the infection, won’t open the door. Meanwhile, their buddy is seizing on the table before their eyes with something trying to eat its way out of his back. And then… that sound. Hoo boy.
Here’s Alien: Covenant’s official synopsis:
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
Alien: Covenant hits theaters May 19.
